How many of you think that we in India or for that matter any other country (with similar economic stature) has opened up its geospatial data for data enthusiasts/analysts.
Leave alone specific data set, what about simple administrative boundaries?
– Do you have access to an updated administrative boundary either as a web service or a shapefile.
– Do you have access to the boundary of the smallest administrative unit in your country?
– If yes, How did you manage to get it? If no, do you even have slightest idea of where you can get the same?
If you as a scholar/scientist/analyst/reporter have at any point of time had to face any one of the above issue, please share your comments.
